...but first I need an iron!!! The fact that I have survived for 5 weeks now with out ironing my clothes is surely a astonishing surprise to those who know me really well. At first it was ok, because most of my clothes were still pressed from when I moved them, but now, as I've washed some of them, they are wrinkled beyond wearing. It's not fun to wear wrinkled skirts to church.
What is so frustrating about the whole situation is that I'm ready to buy an iron, I'm wanting to buy an iron, I'm waiting to buy any iron... but the one I want is out of stock at Target...and has been for several weeks now. And I really do have to buy the iron at Target because of their silly return policy that requires that I buy a single item from the home department with the money from a return without a receipt...and I don't really need any other kitchen item that costs $40 or more, and I do need an iron. So frustrating. I may just have to go to OKC and check out the Targets there.
I'm looking at the Rowenta ActiPress. Has anyone used it? It doesn't have the anti drip feature that some of the higher ones do, but I'm not sure I want to pay any more extra then I have too, because I still have to buy an ironing board too.
A couple days ago I bought some really cute fabric to sew an apon out of. I'm such a messy cook and I really need an apron. I can't wait to start! (once I get an iron...sigh).
My other up and coming project is this couch. Isn't it cute? So vintage! It was an amazing garage sale find. ($15!!) I simply adore it, but although the fabric is the right colors for our living room, the pattern is too much for the stripes on the rug, don't you think? So it needs recovered. I've never done anything with recovering or upholstry, but I have to start somewhere, right? Right now I'm in the research stage. There is no way I'm going to start ripping it apart before I know what I'm doing.
that's all for now!
